The spokesman for the police added that when the complainant got back home at about 7.15pm, she could not find her mother.
“She further stated that when she inquired from her elder brother, Segun, who was at home with their mother, the explanation given by her brother was not satisfactory enough.
“Based on her report, the Divisional Police Officer, Ogijo Division, Ahmed Tijani, led a team of policemen to the house situated on Oketunde Street, Molatori, Ogijo, and the suspect was promptly arrested.”

“The reason for his action is still under investigation,” Oyeyemi added.
